Easter Egg Pizza Lunch

Today Little Bee has three mini Easter egg decorated pepperoni pizzas, an assortment of fresh veggies and string cheese bites with some cute bunny and spring picks, ranch for dipping in the little orange container, and a mixed fruit cup.

Doesn't feel very spring-like around here (snowstorm in the midwest), but Easter's just around the corner anyway, so bunnies seemed in order.

Bunny ham and cheese sandwich, celery sticks and cheese, bunny-eared cherry tomato, a clementine and a bunny shaped hard-boiled egg.

Irish Flag Themed Lunch

Little Bee brought home a couple of very cute art projects from Kindergarten yesterday.  An Irish flag and a clover as they are studying Ireland.  So I was inspired to create an Irish flag themed lunch.  She's got two little roast beef and provolone sandwiches, celery sticks and cheese dip, a clementine, and a couple of painted marshmallows to finish it off (just used my food color markers).

Spaghetti-O's and Salad

Sorry for the poor picture, silly Mommy let the camera battery die - so I had to use my cell phone.

One of N'Anna's favorites today by request - Spaghetti-O's and meatballs with a veggie salad and some mixed fruit on the side.  I snuck in a couple of clover picks yesterday and today, working up to St. Patrick's Day.

Minnie Mouse

Leftovers with a little Minnie Mouse flair.  A sloppy joe with green beans, clementine, and some fruit drops.  Just dressed it up a bit with a Minnie Mouse cheese slice and the cute pink pick.

Little Ladybugs

We ended up having a snow day today, so lunch didn't have to go to school.  She had tomato soup, crackers, two little flower shaped grilled cheese sandwiches (which I grilled before I served, and I didn't retake the photo), applesauce in the ladybug cup, craisins, and a couple of bites of string cheese.

Hello Kitty Pocket Sandwich

My Little Bee requested "the best sandwich ever" for lunch today.  Tuna salad with crisp lettuce - she used to call them "crunchy sandwiches".  Along with, she's got a clementine, some maraschino cherries, tulip shaped carrots, a piece of string cheese, and two mini chocolate chip cookies.

She also requested the cookies for dessert, but it's funny, usually if I pack a dessert type item, it almost always comes back home.  We're really lucky, and she really likes the healthier food items, but we'll see.
